Give The Credit To God

Key Verse

“And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace” (Genesis 41:16).

Text — Genesis 41:9-16


God, in his infinite benevolence, has variously endowed the human race with multifarious talents and grace. By these, many have achieved great feats in science, technology, arts, sports, governance, and so on. The unconverted sinners would normally boast of their personal achievements, not knowing the God who has blessed them. But Joseph, even as a captive boy in Egypt, would always give credit to God for anything he achieved in his life, showing great knowledge of God. Let us be guided by Harvey Mackay who opined that, “Talent is God-given; be humble. Fame is man-given; be thankful. Conceit is self-given; be careful.” If you find this quote funny, I tell you, it is a real nugget. Joseph got it right, giving credit to God for his wisdom and revelations.

My dear, what was your declaration when you got your last school exam result? Did you scream, “Dad, mom, I made it?” It seems normal to react that way, but as a believer, be thankful to God and give Him the credit. That is a new normal for the converted.


Be thankful to God


Lay all your endowments at the feet of Jesus.

Prayer for today

At your feet, O Lord, do I drop my all.
